Boston Legal (ABC) Returns Tuesday, April 8 at 10 p.m. So Far This Season: The never-boring workplace of Crane, Poole & Schmidt has gone through its usual share of turbulence, with the introduction of a few new faces (John Larroquette, Tara Summer, Saffron Burrows) and an array of out-there and soapbox cases, ranging from a consumer case in which a company failed to convert a woman's mother's ashes into a diamond and one where Alan (James Spader) argues that a woman should be forced to have an abortion. Oh, and Alan and Denny (William Shatner) had their Coast Guard applications rejected. When It Returns: The ash-diamond case and another, a mother's suit against a school for overworking her daughter to the point where she fell asleep while driving and died, were left unresolved in the most recent episode, so some resolution there is likely.
